Hi,

start your computer, upon start up hit F8 to get into the safe mode options. select start in safe mode. went into control panel, and do a system restore to a date from last month. Once that happen, the comp restarts itself and lo and behold everything was back to normal.

    No display on the screen and beep.


    hi, i am pretty sure this is a bios problem! but it could be video card or monitor. put it all back the way it was-when it worked-then reset the bios-unplug the pc-take out the battery.(about the size of a coin) there should be a three prong jumper, near the battery-and move it to the two prongs that has not had the jumper on it-then push the power button- this is to discharge the power that will be stored in any components on the motherboard- the pc is must be unpluged- then wait 60 seconds and put the jumper back and the battery(see if the battery is dead first) new ones are about 4 bucks, and they last a long time. then boot up the pc!-you should also set the bios at the correct values, as it will use default settings. some hp and others default settings are fine. on custom pc's setting values will need to be set for optimal settings, for the particular hardware. if this fails, try a new video card and check the monitor also. if you know the model # and brand, you can go to the website,then download the manual. this will show you the location of everything i told you to look for. if you need further help, reply. please rate this solution. good luck! one last thought motherboards can fail, from any number of things. hope this is not the case on yours.

    My HP monitor (f50) has malfunctioned


    Try these 2 steps if they don't work get back to me :)

    Step 1. Connect the video cable and turn on the computer. What happens?
    • If the monitor screen remains blank (no startup screens or onscreen display messages), the monitor must be connected to another computer using a different cable to determine if the monitor is bad. Skip to the Step to connect the monitor to another computer.
    • If the monitor is capable of displaying boot screens but is unable to display Windows, use the following steps to set the computer to a compatible resolution:
      NOTE: Find the native display resolution for your monitor in the User Manual or in the product specifications for the monitor model. If you are unable to find the native display resolution for your monitor model, temporarily use 1024x768 for troubleshooting purposes.
      1. Turn on the computer and press the F8 key repeatedly when the first startup screen appears.
      2. If you are using Windows Vista, select Enable low resolution video (640 x 480) , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. To set display settings that match the monitor, use the steps in the HP support document, Changing Display Settings, Background Image, and Screen Saver in Windows Vista . If you are using Windows XP, select Enable VGA Mode , press Enter , and wait until Windows opens. Continue using these steps to set display resolution. If you are using Windows 98 or ME, select Safe Mode and perform the following steps to enter into a standard VGA mode:
        1. Once Windows opens to the desktop in Safe Mode, click Start , and Run .
        2. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter . The MS Configuration Utility window appears.
        3. Click the Advanced button, and select VGA 640 x 480 x 16 if it is available.
        4. Click OK and restart the computer.
        5. After Windows opens, click Start , and then click Run .
        6. In the Open field type msconfig and press Enter .
        7. Click the Advanced button, and remove the checkmark next to VGA 640 x 480 x 16 .
        8. Click OK . Do NOT restart the computer.
      3. After Windows opens, right-click on an open area of the desktop and select Properties (Windows XP, 98/Me) or Personalize (Windows Vista).
      4. In Windows Vista, Scroll down and click Display Properties . In Windows XP, 98, or Me, click the Settings tab.
      5. In Windows Vista, select the native display resolution size using the Resolution slider. Set Colors to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows XP, select the native display resolution size using the Screen resolution slider. Set Color Quality to Highest (32 bit) . In Windows 98 or Me, select the native display resolution size using the Screen Area slider. Set Colors to True Color .
      6. Click Apply after you have made your adjustment. The screen should blank out temporarily and come back.
      7. If you are satisfied with the new display settings, click Yes on the Monitor Settings windows. If you are not satisfied or if the screen just goes black, wait: Windows sets the screen back to the way it was before. Try another setting until you find a display configuration that is compatible with the monitor and meets your needs.
        NOTE: If the native resolution is not available, download and install updated video driver software for your computer. Updating the video driver software can add more resolutions (graphics modes).
      8. Restart the computer. The monitor should now display a full screen image in high quality. You are done.
    Step 2: Connect to another monitor
    Using a different cable, connect the monitor to another computer that has video. Turn on the monitor and the newly connected computer. What happens?
    • If the monitor works, the video hardware on the original computer is likely to be the source of the problems. You can try connecting the original computer to another monitor that works to update its video drivers.
    • If the monitor remains blank, repair or replace the monitor.
